while sending mail to this client mail goes in queue.

When i resend mail through sendmail -q -v command. it gives error like /var/spool/mqueue/n5R6dVxa009552 (sequence 2 of 2)ncsu.edu': Name server timeout<'yuan@ncsu.edu'>... Transient parse error -- message queued for future delivery

"Name server timeout<'yuan@ncsu.edu'>"

It's a name resolution error. Your server is having trouble resolving the MX record for nscu.edu. This could be a problem with your local server's dns resolvers (not very likely unless you get this for other domains frequently) or a problem with their nameservers or a problem with data transfer between the sites.

Do these messages eventually get delivered or do they stay queued until they get returned?

Are you getting these errors for any other domains?

Can you paste the exact log error from /var/log/maillog related to sending this email? Have you tried contacting the IT department at NCSU to find out if they are seeing anything on their end from you?

From that error it looks like you're having trouble resolving their name, but perhaps the problem is they are having trouble resolving your name and that error is generated on their end.

According to the logs, it flagged your message as spam:

"Jun 27 12:09:39 glyphinternational MailScanner[7830]: Spam Checks: Found 1 spam messages"

have you tried disabling mailscanner to see if that is getting in the way?
